"The Wife Lies All The Time": Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon Divorce Gets Messy as Nick's Dad Posts on Facebook
James Cannon says his son would never cheat on Mariah — even though other women surely came on to him, a new report claims.
According to the report, James believes his son and daughter-in-law could have become the next Jay Z and Beyonce (aka the ultimate Hollywood power couple) if Nick had dedicated more time to Mariah's career. He also revealed the split came as a complete shock to the Cannon clan.

“The only thing I can say is that sometimes marriages break down because of cheating or beating, but that’s not this case. Were temptations ever there with other women? Not for Nick, he genuinely loved the married life," James said in the report.

This isn't the first time Nick's father has spoken out about the duo's divorce. In a recent post on his Facebook page, James cryptically wrote:
"Here [sic] a thing to talk about if the wife love sex and the man can’t stand making love to her. What should that women do? Heres a thing, if the husband say no lies, and the wife lies all the time, what should that man do? Here a thing, if the wife put on 200 pounds and the husband like a nice slim wife what should that man do? If a husband tells his wife not to have an abortion, and she [does] it anyways, what should that man do? Here a thing, if a husband wants to have ten children and his wife only wants two children then what should that man do?"
The post has since been deleted.
